Raising Digital Natives
Dr. Devorah Heitner is a leading author and presenter on Digital Citizenship. She has written the books, Raising Digital Natives and Screenwise all geared toward equipping parents and educators to help our children become good digital citizens. I had the opportunity to go to a workshop and she is very insightful and has done a significant amount of research on the topic of Digital Citizenship. Below is a TED talk that is appropriate for parents and teachers alike to help raise kids in the digital age as we are all in this together.
